Rick Springfield had been arrested for not attending a court hearing for his DUI case.
L.A.'s County Sheriff Department's spokeperson told TMZ that the authorities went to Springfield's house to execute the warrant. But he was released moments later, because his attorney got the warrant recalled.
The warrant was released last Wednesday because Springfield failed to attend his court hearing for DUI last February. He was required to show up in the court to provide proof that he finished the alcohol education program, ordered by the court and paid the fine amounting to $1,555.
Springfield wrote on Facebook while he was at the police station. "I didn't know that I was supposed appear in court a few weeks ago. It was to do with the old DUI charge and it's been cleared up and I am free to go," he wrote.
He was arrested with DUI charge on May 2011, after the authorities saw him speeding, Rolling Stone reported.
After smelling booze, and arresting him, he reportedly threatened to kill the police and his family if they tow his car.
Springfield received informal probation, and three-month alcohol education program.
